The Lyrics

A song inspired by years of owning cats, and now having an orange tabby that I occassionaly call the Tangerine Man. When I sat down to write it, I was astounded that the song fit cats so well. Maybe that's finally what it was about?
Hey Mr. Tangerine Man


Chorus:
Hey! Mr. Tangerine Man, place some hair on me,
I'm not sleepy, won't you walk across my bladder.
Hey! Mr. Tangerine Man, place some hair on me,
In the early mornin' please yowl a little louder

Though I know your evenin's venture
has returned mouse in mouth
Dropped neatly on the couch,
Left me blindly here to stand at the brink of gagging.
Your weariness amazes me,
You're sleeping in a heep,
Baked in the sun shine heat
And your little head too dead for dreaming.


Now take this catnip for your
magic swirlin' trip,
Your senses will be slipped, your paws won't feel to grip,
Your tail will attack, daring you to be pouncing
You're ready to go outside,
Your ready to come in
To go out, to come in, to go out and come in
And then back out again.

Chorus.

Though I see you runnin', spinnin', jumpin'
madly across the room,
It's not away from anyone, it's just escapin' on the run
But it's from the invisible foes your facin'.
Yes to dance beneath the human
is not against your pride
When there Kitty treats involved, or chunks of cheese not small
There's finally a use for him after all.

Chorus.
